Chateau la Coustarelle 2015 Cuvee Prestige Cahors

With boats delayed, the importer has chosen to offer a significant discount to the higher end cuvee from Coustarelle to fill the gap. The nose shows fuller oak spice, dark plum, toasted pumpkin seed, earth and forest floor. The palate has a richness and presence to it with deep black cherry, a hit of oak, and some earth to round out the palate. D&M Tasting Notes

90% old-vine Malbec blended with 10% Tannat. Grapes are destemmed and fermented for 3-4 weeks in stainless steel tanks, then the wine is aged for 12 months in these same stainless steel tanks. It is then transferred to oak barrels, a fifth of which are new each year, where it spends 12 additional months.

Deep purple. Lots of vanilla on the nose buttresses substantial dark fruit. Medium-to-full body. Plenty of ripe blackberry fruit on the palate, along with a hint of licorice. Fine tannin is extremely well integrated on the finish. Importer Notes

Château la Coustarelle is located in the village of Prayssac, next to the renowned Clos de Gamot and on the lieu dit of Les Caris. The domaine's origins date back to 1870 when Paul Cassot settled in the area as a farmer. The family’s 3rd generation, Pierre Cassot, took over in 1947, when the château was renamed “Coustarelle”, or little slope, after the first parcel of vines planted on the lieu dit. In 1980, Pierre’s son Michel Cassot and his wife Nadine took over. They decided in 1992 to produce and bottle their own wines (separate from the local co-op), and by the end of the 90’s their hard work had paid off, with Château la Coustarelle being regarded as one of the highest quality Cahors domaines.
